thanks for the speedy reply.
However, i am not sure what you mean.
Our situation is that there is an orphaned SQL Login User that was set to own a schema. This user does not exist in the database we're using as the base. The Drop User is, naturally, failing because there is a dependency between the user and schema. What we want to do is ignore this dependency...or, better yet, to ignore the users and not even drop them. i thought with the options we set that would work...but apparently the options are not intuitive to me.
Can you clarify what you meant as far as changes that we'd need to make in our code? Or is it just not possible?
